New Hampshire marine patrol officers rescued a 48-year-old woman from Dedham in the waters of Lake Sunapee Saturday afternoon, according to a report from the New Hampshire State Police.
Officers on patrol in Garnder Bay on Lake Sunapee responded to what was described as a "frantic cry for help", and subsequently saw an adult female, later identified as LiLi Li of Dedham, in distress about 50 feet from shore in about 10 to 12 feet of water.
The officers threw a life ring to Li, and were ale to pull her to the patrol boat, according to the press release Saturday. She was then transported to a nearby dock.
Officers determined that Li had weak swimming skills at the time of rescue, and was using a non Coast-Guard approved flotation device while in the water.
